How to Charter your Special Event Party Boat or Dinner Cruise

If this is your first time party boat charter, we offer you a charter guide to walk you through the steps. it’s usually advisable to establish an overall budget of how much you would like to spend on your very special event. It is not uncommon to pay between $100 to $200 or even more per person for a yacht and a fully catered dinner or party with an open bar. The type of menu you select will have a determining effect on the cost and clearly the more guests you invite, the more expensive it becomes but the per person rate comes down.

The next thing to determine, when you are looking for a boat, is to make sure that the boat that you select is US Coast Guard Inspected and certified for the number of guests you will be placing on board for your special event. You must always think: “What is the maximum number of guests that we could possibly have?”

Buffet style lunches or dinners are most popular on yachts due to the limited space for formal seating. Some of the larger yachts can accommodate formal seating and you should always enquire what the actual seating capacity is.
